A while ago I decided to purchase some di:stage stands to have cutomized supports for my beloved figma figures. Those di:stage accessories were awaiting in a box somewhere until recently when I finally decided to “build” something for the Lucky Star team.
I used both clear and black types, which I think look pretty cool once combined together like a chessboard. But I don’t have enought to make a giant one and play chess with figmas. I am sure it would be awesome! “I capture your Nanoha knight with my Saber Lily queen! hahahaha”
And like Blowfish said, I also bought some “keep the dirty dust from my precious figmas” di:stage clear-case addons. I thought it might be interresting to try, and see how good it is to keep the dirty dust away. And at the end it would look like a mini portable showcase ^^
On the instructions, it is said that you can put another level above… I wonder if those who drawn the plan have even tried to do so. Considering the given pieces, it is impossible! or I didn’t get how to proceed. So if anyone managed to stack another panel up, I would be happy to know how ^^;;
Work in progress… assembling the case sides.
And some close-up shots, starting with Minami, Hiyori and Yutaka. Somehow I had to let those three together ^^;
Konata, who looks a bit lonely, doesn’t she?
Ah! Just realised that I forgot the Lucky Star cat mascot… will place it next to Konata then!
Miyuki advising Tsukasa who’s having trouble with her cellphone again. My favorite ^^;
Then Kagami groaning at Misao.
And here is a global view.
I am quite satisfied about the final result, since I had few troubles posing the figmas – especially the Minami/Hiyori/Yutaka trio – and having them fit in the narrow space. Yeah, at the end, those clear case di:stage sets don’t leave much space to put a figma AND its plastic backing. As you can see on the last picture below, figmas have too be placed on the very front. Which doesn’t offer many possibilities and pose choices. So be aware of this if you absolutely want to protect your figmas from evil dust.
Now I would like to do the same with Haruhi’s troop or the winter uniform version of Lucky Star girls. Any pose suggestions?
And I will have to think of another solution for Nanoha’s crew… there is definitely not enough space for those characters unless they are given plain poses.
Too sad ^^
